Phillip Pullman's award winning trilogy is a breathtaking epic adventure spanning a multitude of worlds.

11 year old Lyra lives in a world parallel to ours, a world where souls exist externally in the form of an animal, a daemon.

Lyra discovers that there are dark forces at work and is catapulted into a life-and-death struggle to save not only herself but the future of all worlds, a struggle that will take her beyond The Northern Lights.

With an all star cast including Terence Stamp, Lulu Popplewell, Emma Fielding, Kenneth Cranham, Bill Paterson and Tracy-ann Oberman, it was dramatised by Lavinia Murray, directed by David Hunter.
